What do i need to know to order glasses online?
Understand the basic knowledge of prescription of glasses
The prescription mainly includes the refractive status of the eye, degree of correction required, pupil distance, and the purpose of using the lens. Nowadays, there are many brands and varieties of glasses. Glasses are usually classified according to the material, structure, and use of the lens. Most of the glasses in the prescription are classified by structure. Nowadays, single vision glasses and multi-focal glasses are mainly used, and multi-focal glasses include bifocal glasses, three-lens glasses, and progressive multifocal lenses.
Data obtained by computer optometry alone may not be accurate.
The first thing is to go to the optometry store, or the hospital to do a glasses degree test, namely to get single optometry. The precision computer optometry has errors, and computer optometry is only used to measure separately monocular degrees. What we need is the best visual effect of the binocular match, so the exact prescription needs to be carefully confirmed by comprehensive optometry. Optometrists will ask everyone to try on the insert lenses again, and even need to repeatedly try on several degrees of lenses, in order to finally determine which degree is the most appropriate, because even the professional optometry data is only a rough range, only based on the data of glasses is not necessarily suitable for their own. You can use a focometer to measure the actual parameters of the glasses you are wearing. If you are still unsure of your prescription, it is recommended to fax, mail, or mail your prescription to the merchant when placing your order.
How to measure pupil distance?
You can ask your optometrist for this data, or if you have an extra pair of glasses, please send it to the merchant with your printed order and they will record your pupil distance value from it to ensure that your lenses have an accurate "vision center". They will send you your new and old glasses together. The average pupil distance for adults is usually between 60mm and 66mm.
Why should you choose thin lenses?
Regular lenses are great for low-prescription people, but for high-prescription people, high-prescription regular lenses are too thick and heavy, making them unattractive and have a poor wearing experience. For high-prescription people, we recommend that they choose thin lenses with a high refractive index because they are lighter and more attractive to wear. For any astigmatism above +3.00, we recommend 1.67 or 1.74 refractive index lenses because these lenses are aspherical in design, which means they are thinner, flatter, and lighter than standard spherical lenses, which reduces the magnification of your eyes to other people.
